Nadal seriously needs to donate his body to science. All this after the long matches against FAA and Djokovic and now over 90 minutes to take a brutal set from Zverev.
 
The Ziraffe, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory... This is the moment. If he's ever going to overcome the problems between his ears, Zverev needs to win this match. He's got the game, just not the mentality.

I think Z lost this set more than Rafa won it.
Reminds me of 2-6 tiebreakers comebacks, as Federer-Roddick in 09 Wimbledon, and Sampras-Rafter in Wimbledon too, don’t remember the year well.

Wow, what a choke job by Zverev. He continues to up his game in the choke department.

Somebody get him a diaper soon. He's going to p*** himself on TV soon.

Nadal is insane, over 90 minutes, and he tears Zverev apart. What a freak.
This wasn't impressive from Nadal. Took 6 SP to win 1. He barely won it with a lot of luck.
Novak would have finished this set 20 mins ago.
Oh well - whatever gets the job done. But the level from Rafa is disappointing vs the QF level.

This isn't over. Z was still better apart from the last stretch of TB. Nadal just spent loads of energy.

If Z takes the second, this will become interesting.

That had little to do with fitness bro. Still the first set after mostly a ball bashing serve fest from Alex. That was game pure and simple!! especially in the tiebreak.

The passing shot on the run at 3-6 was so reminiscent of so many Nadal shots on chatrier. The break of Federer in the first set of 2011 final and the running fh against ferrer I think from 2005 in particular

That is why we will never see another Nadal, his extremely rare virtuoso skills, mental fortitude, grit, and genetic freakish athleticism is once in history.

The next Nadal is probably playing Football or any other sport.
